John Wade

John Wade


After ten years at Cisco Systems and one year at start-up Securas Consulting Group, John was laid off in 2008 and trying to figure out what to do. Leaning on his blue collar work ethic and desire to do something outside, the idea of starting a landscaping business came to fruition.

When he’s not out making sure your lawn & landscaping is top notch, he loves being outdoors and finding the next mountain to climb…literally! John works closely with The SEAL Legacy Foundation in order to give back to those who have served our country. His latest fundraising initiative raised almost $75,000 for The SEAL Legacy Foundation while he climbed to the top of Pico de Orizaba in Mexico. He also trains Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Gracie Raleigh and enjoys hiking, working out and spending time with his family.

John founded JustGreen Lawn & Landscaping in 2010 by cutting lawns on his own. Looking to create not just another lawn company, John built JustGreen on the premise to treat every customer as if they were the only one and their lawn was his lawn. By putting the customer’s needs first and ensuring each customer has an exceptional experience, John continues to strive to make JustGreen Lawn & Landscaping the premier choice in Raleigh.

Anne Wade

Anne Wade

Office Manager (and John's Wife)

After spending 15+ years in the corporate world, Anne decided to pursue a different avenue in a field she was passionate about and became a licensed esthetician. However, when the pandemic happened her business was shut down. Fortunately, JustGreen was growing and John needed help in the office, so who better to hire than his own wife!

Currently, Anne handles the day to day operations in the office. Answering the phone and emails, scheduling appointments, keeping the books organized, invoicing, and payroll just to name a few of her responsibilities.

When not in the JG office, Anne still administers the occasional facial (as well as helping people decorate/design their homes) but most of the time you will find her alongside John working on the many projects they have on their “fixer-upper” farm, camping, hiking, or climbing mountains.

Chris Meador

Chris Meador

Maintenance Account Manager

Chris is a native of Northern Virginia. He attended Virginia Tech, where he spent time on both the Varsity and Club baseball teams.

During his time at school, he began working for a local landscaper which sparked his interest in the field.

After graduating from Tech, he and his fiancée made the move to Raleigh where he quickly joined the JustGreen team as a lawn maintenance technician. After about a year in the field, he joined our management team working as our maintenance account manager where he enjoys working with JustGreen clients and expanding his knowledge of the business.

When not at work you will find Chris spending time with his fiancé, Madison and his dog Cooper, golfing, attending NC State sporting events, listening to live music and traveling.

Grant Maiorana​

Grant Maiorana

Project Account Manager

Grant spent most of his life in Chesapeake, VA where he was born and raised. In his free time, he likes spending time at the beach, surfing, and playing golf with his dad or friends.

Grant attended college at Virginia Tech where he played baseball for the Hokies and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Commercial Real Estate. Upong graduating, he moved south to Raleigh and started his first job with JustGreen Lawn and Landscaping as a Maintenance Account Technician. After a short stint in Raleigh, Grant made his way back home, to Chesapeake, where he worked for two years as a Project Manager for a local custom home builder.

Grant stayed in touch with John over those years and always joked about when he would be coming back to join the JustGreen team with his newly acquired project management experience. It wasn’t until January of 2022, that he finally made the move back to Raleigh and took over the Project Manager role for John and JustGreen. If you have a landscape project or a rain garden being installed on your property, you will be working closely with Grant.
